About This Topic

As a renewable, sustainable and environmentally friendly energy source, geothermal energy can help not only meet global energy needs, but also reduce environmental concerns and threats. It is thus crucial in addressing the world’s various ongoing and emerging challenges related to energy supply and the environmental crises. The contents of this special issue have been assembled to cover all aspects of geothermal energy, including but not limited to:

• Deep and shallow geothermal energy
• Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGSs)
• Hybrid and integrated geothermal systems
• Geothermal heating/cooling systems
• Geothermal energy and sustainable development
• Life Cycle Analysis (LCA)
• Environmental Risk Assessment (ERA)
• Social, economic, and political aspects of geothermal energy
• Energy and exergy analysis of geothermal systems
• Policy and regulatory aspects of geothermal energy
• Applications of geothermal energy
